The goop in the drain hole keeps the oil around the cam (and leaking out of the cover) but does not keep the valve stems or springs in an oil bath.  The drain holes in question are in the cam case, not in the head.  This does not look like something the folks at Lotus would do.  This car has a nice protective coating of oil and was leaking like a sieve.  I wonder if pluggung this hole was an attempt to stem the flow of oil from between the cam case and the head?  There were also ample amounts of blue silicon sealer smeared all over.

Have a nice day
